Today's picture comes to us courtesy of Special Contributor Ron Trees. This masterpiece from the Creator's great gallery is a gorgeous snapshot in time that reminds us once more just how lucky we are to inhabit such a wonderful planet. And as always, Ron has managed to capture it in the best "light" possible. Here are a few words from Ron about the image:
    "A couple of days ago on my way to work, the sun was just rising.
    Luckily I had my camera and was able to pull off of the road and take
    a few photos. I have said it before, but I think it bears repeating that
    I feel that the Master Painter does some of His best work at sunrise
    and sunset. I hope that you enjoy the photo."

    Ron, I wish every morning would be as special as the one you’ve caught in this wonderful image. While we’ve been getting what the locals refer to as “gulley washers” lately, I’m lucky enough to be sitting here watching the rain outside while enjoying a beautiful sunrise courtesy of you! Thanks for sharing this special moment.

    Beautiful image today Mr. Rouse. Ron Trees has published some real gems on here, but this one is the best yet IMHO.
